Excerpt:

There is growing concern about the level of violence in Winnipeg’s North End. The media regularly feature headline reports about gun violence, and street gang activity has become a focus of attention in the effort to “get tough on crime.”

Against this backdrop, the authors met with six members of a North End street gang, who wanted to convey their experiences of living in the North End, their thoughts on the recent events that have occurred there, and their insights into what it will take to make meaningful change.
